A trauma response team from the education ministry is to visit York Castle High School in St Ann this morning following the death of one of its students in a traffic crash yesterday.

The ministry says the Grade 10 student was killed approximately 5 p.m. yesterday as she and other students made their way home via public transportation.

It says the bus in which the student was travelling was hit by a truck going in the opposite direction.

The ministry did not name the dead child in a media release last night.

Another student has been admitted to the St Ann’s Bay Hospital with a shattered arm.

The education ministry says it will provide the necessary counselling support to the school and extended community.
